Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Dating back to 1878, this home is absolutely brimming with character. Every inch harks back to the past, from exposed stone walls to whitewashed beams on the vaulted ceilings. But don't let that fool you. There are plenty of 21st-century comforts here, too – be it glossy showers or a sleek kitchen filled with all the bits and bobs you'll need to rustle up Grecian feasts. And don't even get us started on the dazzling views. Pad outside and be greeted by the Ionian Sea sparkling on the horizon and Kefalonia's tree-studded peaks standing proud in the distance. Our favourite spot to admire the scenery? The private pool, where long, lazy afternoons relaxing in the water are a given. You also can't beat the vistas from the balcony or the terrace. Come evening, gather around the table and dine alfresco, the coastal sunset creating the dreamiest backdrop to your meal. For a day out and about, Kefalonia's stunning coastline is well worth exploring. Drive 10km to the famous Myrtos Beach and stretch out in the sand, or visit villages like Assos and Fiskardo for a smattering of restaurants and a whole of charm.

Home truths

    The main bedroom is located in the guest house, which has its own entrance – while it's perfect for parents or those wanting a smidge more privacy, it isn't suitable for children

    The other three bedrooms are inside the main house and located on the first floor

    If you're travelling with little ones, your host can provide a cot and high chair on request

    We suggest renting a car here, as you'll need a vehicle to explore the island and reach the beach – there's private parking available

    The dining table doubles as a laptop-friendly workspace if you need to work from home

    As the pool isn't fenced in, children will need to be supervised outside at all times

The characterful and colourful village of Makriotika is a quiet spot for coffee amongst the locals, whilst Drakapoulata has that traditional old-village feel. Then there’s Myrtos Beach – it’s popular among...
